Entry-level Caterham Seven 160 priced from £14,995

New entry-level Caterham Seven 160 is now available to order with prices starting from £14,995 or £17,995 for the fully built model.

UK variant is named Seven 160, while rest of the Europe will know it as Seven 165.

The number five at the end of the EU spec car’s moniker signifies that the vehicle complies with the EU5 emissions standards, allowing it to be sold across mainland Europe and beyond.

Power comes from a compact Suzuki-sourced 80bhp 660cc, three-cylinder, turbocharged engine, taking the lightweight Seven 160 from 0-60mph in 6.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 100mph. In standard spec this Suzuki engine delivers 64bhp.

Caterham Cars CEO, Graham Macdonald, said: “As the Caterham Group as a whole grows and expands into new sectors and industries, our commitment to keep evolving the Seven is very much alive.

“The 160 offers something truly different to the entry-level market. It’s more economical, more accessible and every bit as fun on the road as other Sevens but has its own unique personality.”

Production of the Caterham Seven 160 and 165 is expected to begin in early 2014, with first deliveries later that Spring.
